Notable changes/events in 2013: Back surgery, Panthers/Patriots Monday Night Football game, Wrote my first novel a 200 page middle-grade fiction book called Unicorns vs. Zombies and I've sent it off to several agents, but haven't found anyone who's interested in publishing it. (But that's OK because I mainly wrote it for the kids and to say that I've written a book.)
Follow-up from last year's hopes:
Have my knee recover so I can start dunking again. My knee recovered from the ACL injury, but my back was too bad to let me dunk again.
Become almost fluent again in Spanish as I work with the Gate City branch on the high council. Si.
That the Panthers make the playoffs. Yes, baby!
Hopes for 2014:
To fully recover from back surgery so I can start dunking again.
That I can join a competitive old man's basketball league.
That I can start writing another new book. (I'm kicking one around right now called The Nerd Vortex of Hunter Junior High that Saved the Universe)
That the Honda dies and I can finally buy midlife crisis sports car.
